We have visited several places in Italy and this year trip (two weeks) was our second time in Certaldo and apartment in Podere Casasole. It is easy to agree with the other reviews: we chose "Il Caratello" because we knew the apartment is spacious enough to accommodate our 4 person family, quite new, beautiful and tidy. The kitchen is well eqipped and perfect for cooking. Lovely terrace for eating and spending time with a beautiful view. The pool is great for our boys and adults too. The owners are very friendly and helpful. If you wish to get very good Tuscany dinner, ask the the owner Lady to make it - she is an excellent cook !
The location is perfect for daytrips to Pisa, Florence, Siena etc. Car is neccessary to be able to visit supermarkets and other targets in Certaldo city. The road nearby didn't bother us.
We will choose the same apartment when we'll visit Tuscany again !
